System specs:

mid-2017 Macbook Pro RP560


eGPU hardware: 

Venus Mantiz - Stock for the time being, though I do think the fan is overly loud and would like to replace. 

Installation steps: 

Windows 10: 

I followed what ed_co did here (Thank you so much!)

MacOS High Sierra: I followed the guide here


Benchmarks: This is still coming, just got everything up and running today, so haven't gotten this far yet. Though there are several others that have already done this. 


Comments: So far I am loving it. For a long time I was working off a Hackintosh, but with kids, family, etc.... that got to time sensitive for me to keep up to date. My goal is to consolidate computers and only have a MacBook Pro +eGPU.

Right now the only issue I am having is with Chrome.. Chrome starts up and shuts off my laptop screen and makes the system go super slow. I've only just started researching this.
